Helping Sailors Get
Back On Their Feet

Our office is dedicated solely to helping commercial sailors waylaid by injuries sustained at sea. Sailors are covered by the Jones Act, which outlines the duties that they are owed by their captain and the ship owner, and when these duties are violated due to their negligence, the sailor is given the right to sue for damages. This is where our team can come alongside you, helping you litigate your claim and working to get the compensation you need in order to fully recover. When you have questions, we have answers.

Our co-captain, Jed Silverman, is personally familiar with the struggles that sailors face at sea, as he served as a sailor in his youth and participated in the challenges that workers on commercial vessels face. He is dedicated to using the legal skills that he has acquired in his more than two decades of litigation to make negligent captains and ship owners shiver their timbers when he fires the first salvo of legal arguments. Both Neal Davis and Jed have been selected for inclusion in Texas Super Lawyers for multiple years, with Jed being selected for inclusion in Texas Rising Stars as well in 2006, 2008 and 2009. Together, they can be the lifeline you need when your life has gone overboard.
